General Info

According to code compliance of both cities, a sign at the entrance of Creekwood does not automatically cover all properties – each property needs to have their own NON-SOLICITING or NO TRESPASSING sign posted.

Please call the police non-emergency number should a solicitor come to your property even though a NON-SOLICITING or NO TRESPASSING sign is posted on your property.

Note:   For the City of Fort Worth: 

If a NON-SOLICITING sign is posted, the police may refer you back to Code Compliance. If you have a NO TRESPASSING sign posted, it is stronger in the court of law, so the police will more likely respond (Per Code Compliance Customer Service Manager).

Soliciting by City:


All persons soliciting must first obtain a Solicitor’s Permit from the City of Saginaw.

All persons soliciting must carry a copy of their permit with them at all times. Residents are encouraged to ask to see the permit. The permit lists the name of the company as well as each individual solicitor. Only those persons who are listed on the permit are allowed to solicit.

The hours for soliciting are:

  • April through October, 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
  • November through March, 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

*** Solicitors must observe “No Soliciting” signs posted by residents ***

Here is the link to a document with current licenses that is maintained by the City of Saginaw:


Hours are restricted from 9:00 am to 1 hour before sunset. The Door-to-Door Sales registration refers to the following section:

Section 20-144. Regulations:
A door-to-door vendor shall not engage in vending activities:

  • At any residence or business that has a “No Soliciting” or “No Trespassing” sign posted on the property;
  • At any residence or business where the door-to-door vendor has been verbally informed that no solicitation of food, goods, services, or merchandise is allowed.

Here is the ordinance it refers to…/Offic…/2002_Ordinances/15245.PDF 

*** Solicitors must observe “No Soliciting” signs posted by residents ***

NOTE: The definition of door-to-door vendor: For the purpose of this article, “door-to-door vendor” means a person who travels by foot or vehicle, from door-to-door, house-to-house, building-to-building, or place-to-place, within the city, for purpose of offering for sale, or soliciting orders for future delivery, of food, goods, services, or merchandise.

Bottom Line:
A salesperson has to respect a non-soliciting sign, regardless if they are working "on your neighbor's property and therefore will give you a special deal".
There are fines up to $500.00 per incident reported
